    October 22, 2021 - Dinner in Bodega Bay (Terrapin Creek): From a restaurant list, so opened and served. Ruby, some bricking; aromatic, soy and umami/tamari, red cherry; balanced medium body, medium alcohol 13.5%, medium-plus acidity, plenty of tamari complexity, fairly clean for Musar with only a slight whiff of funk which blows off quickly, smooth and integrated medium tannin, great mouthfeel; complex and tertiary, long finish. A lovely wine which would benefit a lot from a decanter and some time. Still, incredible balance with dinner. 93

    October 18, 2021 - Drinking beautifully. Wonderful red fruit, good depth. Hard not to drink now.

    October 17, 2021 - Opened partly to see if it’s fading as others have found - for what it’s worth, this was as fresh as a daisy. Cranberry, cherry, fig and rosemary into a long balsamic finish with a touch of smoke. Excellent balance and depth, a typically intriguing mix of flavours.

    October 15, 2021 - 10 years ago today I proposed to my now wife, and she said yes. To celebrate we had a bottle of 2001 Musar with dinner. Now 10 happy years later we open the last bottle of 2001 and it is fantastic. Wonderful Musar nose of red cherries, perfume, touch of VA, bit of leather. The palate is sublime, beautiful fruit, resolved tannins, just delicious.

    October 10, 2021 - The Musar 2001 start to turn into the first notes of fortified wines. The color is amber and the taste not what it used to be. To consume fast.
